Super simple, as easy as the proverbial pie, this Baileys Banana Ice cream is the tastiest dessert I’ve made in simply ages.
Only 5 ingredients
With only 5 ingredients to worry about here and all bar one in the cupboards. Nutella, instant coffee granules, cocoa powder. That’s three of them accounted for. The other is Baileys. Oh please have a bottle of this wee gem stashed in the cupboard from Christmas.
The keen reader of this blog will remember I showed you how to make your own homemade Baileys quite a while ago. Here it is – Homemade Irish Coffee Liqueur.
The other ingredient you’ll need here are three bananas. Frozen bananas. Yes they must be frozen for this Easy Baileys Banana Ice-cream to work.
I know everyone is trying to waste not want not these days and use every scrap of food. I’ve always been a huge believer in freezing bananas.
For some reason, the damn things never get eaten in this household. They seem to go from green to spotted within a nanosecond. Instead of chucking them I always peel and chop them and stash them in the freezer in bags.
Easy Baileys Banana Ice-cream
Not only are they great for making this Easy Baileys Banana Ice-cream but you can make all different flavours of ice cream (or nice-cream as it is often called) from the humble frozen banana.
- 4 frozen chopped bananas
- 50ml Baileys
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp instant coffee granules
- 3 tbsp Nutella
- Bash the bananas in their bag with a rolling pin to ease the stress on your food processor. You’ll thank me for this when you still have one that works after making this. If you just chuck in huge hunks of frozen banana your poor machine will strain like buggery and possibly burn out and give up the proverbial ghost. Of course if you have a super duper fancy high powered ice-crushing processor you will have no problem at all.
- Chuck the bananas in the food processor along with all the other ingredients. Take a swig of the Baileys. You deserve it after bashing the bananas and the noise this lot will make in the food processor will drive you to drink anyway.
- Whazz like mad. Keep using a rubber spatula to pull the banana mixture down the sides of the food processor. Keep whazzing till it is all smooth and creamy.
- Scoop into a plastic box and cover with a piece of baking parchment and pop on the lid. Put it in the freezer for a couple of hours to firm up. The Baileys will stop it from freezing solid so you should be able to scoop it from the freezer within about 5 minutes of taking it out.
Congratulate yourself for not guzzling the whole lot straight from the processor.
So there you have it. Easy Baileys Banana Ice-cream. Betcha can’t taste the bananas at all can you?
